Cayin YD01 Fantasy In-Ear Monitor – Dynamic Single Driver In-Ear Monitor

Inspired by the shape of noble stringed instruments, the new Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy should not only be able to convince with special elegance, high-quality workmanship, but of course with a particularly fine sound.

The new Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy is intended to be a particularly elegant, yet fine-sounding in-ear headphone, aimed at trend-conscious, demanding music lovers.

Attention has been paid to every detail in order to offer a solution that provides audiophile sound for on-the-go listening and can also meet the demands of modern lifestyle solutions.

Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy – For audiophile demands

Zhuhai Spark Electronic Equipment Co. Ltd. is the company behind the Cayin Audio brand. With the new Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy, the specialists for hi-fi and personal audio solutions have developed a solution that is supposed to achieve the set goals of audiophile music reproduction with a particularly sophisticated driver concept.

It is stated that the new Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy uses a two-way magnet system with a double chamber to drive a driver with a beryllium-coated bio-cellulose membrane. This dynamic driver has a diameter of 10.3 mm.

This special construction guarantees a particularly high efficiency and also a very dynamic, neutral and balanced reproduction over a wide frequency range. In addition, sound-damaging resonances are reduced to a minimum by the aforementioned double-chamber construction.

The manufacturer specifies an impedance of only 37 ohms and a sensitivity of 108 dB for the new Cayin YD01 Fantasy in-ear monitor. This makes the Cayin YD01 Fantasy in-ear monitor ideal for mobile solutions, even those that do not offer a high output power. At sources with adequate or even very high output power, the Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy will probably indeed offer a particularly fine reproduction, especially since the frequency response is specified as 20 Hz up to 40 kHz.

According to the data sheet, the Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy is also capable of reproducing hi-res audio data with the corresponding fine detail, at least in accordance with the usual specifications.

Glamorous housing

The manufacturer speaks of an almost glamorous design of the housing in connection with the Cayin YD01 Fantasy in-ear monitor. A particularly high-quality 316 stainless steel is used here, whereby the surface has been polished to a high gloss and thus receives the promised particularly noble touch.

Of course, the Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy has been designed according to ergonomic criteria, so that it can be used for hours without any problems.

Comfort for hours

The Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy comes with a wide range of accessories, including a large number of differently designed ear moulds – to be precise, no fewer than twelve pairs are included in the package. There should be a suitable pair for almost every requirement.

Choosing the right pair also achieves a very high attenuation of up to -26 dB in ambient noise, so that you can enjoy music undisturbed.

Complex construction of the cable

The manufacturer particularly points out the complex construction of the cable, which has a practical length of 1.3 m and ends in a 3.5 mm stereo mini jack plug.

Four separately insulated and twisted strands, each with 38 conductors made of 6N OCC copper, some even coated with silver, form the cable structure.

The branching of the cables for the left and right earplug is realised with an aluminium splitter.

The 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack is gold-plated, and at the other end there are so-called 0.78 2-pin connectors, which are also gold-plated.

Extensive accessories

We have already mentioned the twelve pairs of earpieces, as well as a cleaning utensil for these earpieces, a cleaning cloth for the stainless steel housing, a cable clip and a carrying bag in the scope of delivery of the new Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy. All this is packed in an attractive box.

The new Cayin In-ear Monitor YD01 Fantasy should be available in specialist shops within the next few days. The recommended retail price is € 998.

Getting to the point

Cayin Audio describes the new Cayin YD01 Fantasy in-ear monitor as a single dynamic driver in-ear monitor for the highest demands. Not only does it offer a driver concept that should satisfy even audiophile music lovers, but it is also characterised by a particularly elegant appearance.
